Frequently Asked Questions
If you have test scores on file with BCTC then you will not need to resubmit official copies of them.

You can find your scores under: Student Self Service > Academic Records > View my test scores.
Please note: All students must submit the test scores required for each program. Please refer to your prospective program's checklist for specific requirements regarding acceptable tests and scores. If we do not have scores on file for you, we will require an official copy submitted in your packet.
